None of this would be possible without the support and guidance of many people in my life. I am so grateful to all of my friends and family who have been my recipe tasters throughout the years. Cooking is so much more fun when there is someone to eat with!
A special thanks goes out to the folks who have been especially helpful in launching the blog:
To my mom, Janice, for letting me get messy in the kitchen and, even now, helping me clean up. Also for forwarding the link to everyone in her e-mail address book.
To AK, for copy editing and moral support. Your constant praise and willingness to eat everything I make keeps me inspired.
To Mary Rose, for her copy editing help, continuous food conversations, and for letting me put sour cream in “Good Chicken”.
To Olivia, my PR genius, who came up with the ifoodyou name.
To Sarah Bell (www.sarahlaurenbell.com) for designing me a gorgeous logo. Also for loaning me her camera until my backorder came in.
To “Chocolate”, also for loaning me a camera. And for giving me a little friendly competition in the kitchen.
